Just found out that the Bicoastal Collective will be opening for Dave Douglas’s quintet at the Halifax Jazz Festival.
Casino Nova Scotia is partnering with JazzEast to present The Dave Douglas Quintet in an intimate concert in the Schooner Showroom Friday, July 12. Described by The New York Times as “gorgeous and contemplative,” the Dave Douglas Quintet is led by the prolific trumpeter, composer and educator Dave Douglas. A recipient of two Grammy nominations and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Douglas will also serve as special guest faculty for JazzEast’s 2013 Creative Music Workshop.
The BiCoastal Collective, opens for the Quintet. Described as “fresh and vibrant” by American jazz critic Scott Yanow, Tynan and Lington will be joined by Dave Staples (piano), Tom Easley (bass), Tom Roach (drums) and Jake Hanlon (guitar).
